    Anyone have any info on these pens?

    I picked them up at a fleamarket. There are no manufacturer markings or anything, and Googling has not been fruitful.
    They look to be pretty nicely built.
    Thank you in advance!

    Thank you, that was my thought as well. Would love to see what other similar pens this company makes though!
    BTW where is a good site to find Chinese no-name pens? (hopefully with good pictures)
    Thank you!

    Sorry but can't really help there. There is a fairly active sub-forum over at FPN that is dedicated to Chinese pens.

    Capri Pen and Mechanical Pencils were a division of Paper-Mate. Paper-Mate Capri Pen's and Mechanical Pencil's began manufacture in 1954, Paper-Mate' was purchased by Gillette in 1955 and Capri's were made under the group of companies who made Pens and Mechanical pencils for Paper-Mate. Bad money losing business decisions and a lawsuit over pen design and Ink led to the sale of Paper-Mate to Gillette in 1955. . After 2000, Sanford Brands, a division of Rubbermaid. Capri Pens went through a redesign in 1963. Capri Pens were some of the most popular pens ever manufactured and were on the high end for a day to day pen. The Paper-Mate Capri's, Paper-Mates "luxury" Brand were most popular between 1954 and 1963. The Capri, Paper-Mates Luxury Brand was slowly phased out between 1969 and 1970 replaced by the Flair.

    Unless they are copies or the wrong box, your Capri's are the "Gold Luxury Gift Set" that came in different colors and shades and was not manufactured after 1969. 1969 cost was less than $2. (About $15 in today's money). The most popular was the Gold Lady's Capri. $1.70 by itself. The gold is gold filled with the rest of the pen a satin finish. They were designed to hold multiple color inks originally designed by Frawley in the 1940's. Prior to 1954 the Capri's were known as the Tempo line. Those particular pens, the Capri's. were known as "Paper-Mate's Finest Pens" and sold by Schwabacher-Frey in the 1950's. They are American made.

    Vintage Paper-Mate Capri's on ebay are going $25-$50 each in perfect condition, no set and no box.

    Edited to correct some dates.
